Ridings Shopping Centre

Taking a step in the right direction

Project summary

We have enjoyed a long association with Ridings shopping Centre and were recently awarded the contract to replace the balustrade in the centre’s car park.

Works carried out

We were instructed by Saville’s on behalf of the Ridings shopping centre to upgrade the existing staircase in the multi storey car park. Over time the stair cases balustrade, which was of timber construction, had become worn and in some places rotten which was both unsafe and unsightly. The project entailed removing the exiting balustrade and replacing it with a steel version. We organised the manufacture of the new balustrade in accordance with the client’s drawings.

Once a scaffolding pavement license was obtained from Wakefield council, our in house scaffolding division erected the scaffold over 5 storeys and the installation of the balustrade was completed by our construction teams. It was imperative that the busy carpark remained open during the construction period and the safety of the public was a priority. The work was completed within the timescales set by the client and the result was a more robust safer balustrade which was in keeping with the style of the car park.

We also work closely with the centres management team, offering an emergency call out service and carrying out general maintenance within the centre, including shop refurbishments, roof repairs, plumbing projects, painting and decorating and installing safety signage throughout the centre.

What our customers say

“For almost 3 years I have been using QCS for all aspects of works here at the Ridings Shopping Centre. Their staff are always professional and adhere to all different requirements you would expect for a live shopping centre to have with vast amounts of customers/tenants in the area at any one time. Costs are always competitive and very reasonable considering the level of work being carried out on site is always to a high standard. We will and have recommended them to other centre’s within our portfolio.”

“After shopping around, I finally picked out QCS Ltd to replace my garage flat roof – rather large 7+ x 7+ Meters or around 50 Sq Mts., using an up-to-date Rubber compound over new wood which was 18mm thick – life 25 years. Took just a shade in time over what I though they would do it in, but there was a reason, quality, as the finished roof is fantastic with attention to detail, especially where corners etc. were concerned. Truly, I’m well satisfied, in fact ‘over the moon’”

John Armstrong

“I have used QCS several times for a range of different jobs from large scale house refurbishments to smaller maintenance jobs. The work has included advice on design and materials, plumbing, building work, electrical, decorating, tiling and at times a mix of everything! The quotes have always been competitive and the quality of service outstanding with fast response times where needed. Nothing has ever been too much trouble. I would not hesitate in recommending QCS to anyone looking for a high quality value for money service.”

“I have had a strong working relationship with QCS for many years and have always been happy with the quality of their work, the service provided and their attention to detail. Running a residential care home brings with it a particular set of challenges and QCS have always worked hard to ensure that the home is fully operational when work is carried out”
